WHO WE ARE
Two guys - one mission.
Sukru Cinar, Co-Founder
Sukru graduated from RIT with a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology, concentrating in Network Engineering. He first worked for Eastman Kodak as a Network Engineer, and later as a System Administrator for over 12 years: 2 in the Arlington School District, and 10 at MIT.
Bill Gross, Co-Founder
Bill has spent his entire career building and maintaining line-of-business web applications for various organizations. He is one of the best at managing the complexity behind building new applications.
The Common Goal
Bill and Sukru co-founded EnduraCode in 2014 because they believed the open-source Enterprise Web Library (EWL) behind it to be something great. After building the library, Bill has taken meticulous care over its 10-year course to fine tune its code, eliminating the duplications that are common to many business web applications out there. They don't believe in doing the same work twice and want to stand out from the crowd of one-and-done services by offering a dynamic and enduring development option to customers, with rock-solid code that is refined and maintained over time to keep up with ever-changing technologies and demands. To that end, Sukru and Bill continue to tend the EWL, supporting the apps that they have already built with it and paving the way for new ones to be made.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Hear about the passion behind our work.
In 1999 our first client, an insurance broker, came to us with a simple need: build a calculator for long-term care insurance premiums. This first project led to others and it soon became apparent that this insurance broker, like almost every organization we've worked with since, was running outdated software whose original developers were long gone. But the business processes behind the software were not outdated, and this was our introduction to the dysfunctional world of line-of-business software, in which developers are all but encouraged to walk away from the applications they've built, leaving the technology frozen until the next team helicopters in a decade later to do a full replacement, at a cost that is exorbitant in both dollars and organizational wisdom.
We are working every day to stop this madness. Instead of cranking out one-off applications, we craft powerful solutions that we will support for ten years or more. We perform continuous adaptive maintenance on all of our applications and charge monthly fees to cover the costs. And we make ourselves available when the business processes do change.
We've also built and released a complete business web application framework that not only supports our focus on maintenance, but also embodies our belief in achieving high productivity through reduced development flexibility. By saving ourselves from a thousand inconsequential decisions, we've supercharged the rate at which we can implement big forms and tame complex data. The framework gives us a user interface, generates the code to build forms, elevates us above HTML, and enables us to move data to and from a database in a single, consistent, cohesive fashion.
